The A's are trying to get back on track as their road trip continues. Can they take advantage of the squishy Royals?

The Oakland Athletics are still in second place in the American League West and have a 1.5 game cushion over the Los Angeles Angels. That cushion would be greater had the A's not just dropped a series to the Chicago White Sox.

The Oakand road trip continues on Tuesday as they travel to visit the Kansas City Royals. The A's could use another series win. What better time to do it than against a sub-.500 team?
